Parents without cars.

This will be a series in which I go over a lot of the different items and strategies that have helped me as a deaf/blind parent without a car.  Being without a car changed how I approached different situations when my tadpole was younger. 

I remember when my kiddo was just a baby and I had a frustrating time trying to find ideas or suggestions of how parents dealt without a car. At the time, it seemed like no one online had anything to say about it! Seriously, how do parents in large cities deal with taxis and car seats? What do you do when you have to walk everywhere? Part of my inspiration for starting this site stemmed from that frustration.  I didn't want for people to constantly have to reinvent the wheel when we can just share our experiences.  My goal is to help out fellow parents and hopefully give you some ideas.

Parents who do not drive or do not have a car for whatever reason (disability, live in a city with great public transport, financial reasons, etc.) definitely have to be stricter with what they allow into their diaper bags and how they plan out their days/trips.  Also, we have to sometimes think outside the box with car seats, strollers, etc. Imagine if you had to lug around a car seat because you were bouncing from a cab to the store, then in a friend's car on the way home.  It gets interesting!

Please follow along as I go over what I packed as a mom of a baby, what types of car seats I used, and what strollers I put through the wringer.  Please note that this is just my experience that I'm willing to share for ideas and chuckles:-]
